HeeSun Lee isn’t your average Hip Hop emcee. Put up for adoption in her native Korea at the age of four months, she was brought to America and raised by Chinese American parents on Staten Island, NY. As a teenager, she became a fan of Hip Hop acts ranging from Lauryn Hill and Will Smith to Tupac Shakur.  Lee’s story is unique in that she credits not only her faith but also Hip Hop for saving her life. “Hip Hop saved me from a lot of things,” she confesses.  As a wife of a NYPD officer, and the mother of two daughters, Hip Hop has been a passion and a juggle of life and family.

Back in 2018, she competed in the Korean Rap Competition Reality show - Show Me the Money Season 6 and progressed through 3 rounds, though she had very little grasp of the Korean language, she showcased her skill set and her vernacular as a gifted positive role model rapper.

In April of 2019, she was on a 5 city tour in Korea - Busan, Taegu, Daejon, Kwangju, and Seoul for a Comeback Tour to promote Youth participation in Church.  

She just released two new videos - ColorBlind and Coronavirus (Rap God cover)

    MISS AMERICA 2022

    EMMA BROYLES

    Emma Broyles is from Anchorage, Alaska, and currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona to continue her studies in biomedical sciences and vocal performance at Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University. Having dermatillomania and acne herself along with a strong passion for helping others, she chose to study biomedical sciences as a preliminary degree to medical school with the goal of becoming a dermatologist.

     

    Not only is Emma the 100th Anniversary Miss America, she represents the Korean- American community as the first Korean-American to earn the job of Miss America. Emma has earned over $110,000 in scholarships as a local candidate, Miss Alaska's Outstanding Teen, Miss Alaska, and Miss America to further her educational goals.

     

    In addition to her social impact initiative, Building Community through Special Olympics, Emma also speaks of having ADHD, which she calls her "super power."

    Emma has spent over half of her life advocating for people with intellectual disabilities through her work with Special Olympics Alaska. Her older brother, Brendan, has Down syndrome and is a source of inspiration for her. When Brendan first became a Special Olympics athlete at the age of 8, Emma started attending weekly practices with him. She grew up learning from those who are unlike her, allowing her to develop an understanding of the importance of inclusion and empathy. This understanding is what drove her to continue her involvement through Partners Club, a school program through Special Olympics Alaska. She realized the significance in teaching students about inclusion and equipping them with the necessary tools to be leaders of social change in their communities. Since then, Emma has toured schools to spread the message of inclusion, continued her involvement with Special Olympics as a volunteer and coach, and advocated for those with intellectual disabilities.
